NICE Guidance - December 2011

The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has published new guidance for the month of December 2011. This month there is one clinical guideline that impacts upon primary care.

The anaphylaxis clinical guideline offers advice on the care of adults, young people and children following emergency treatment for suspected anaphylaxis.

The recommendations include documenting acute clinical features in cases of suspected anaphylaxis including the time of onset and any circumstances immediately before the onset of symptoms in order to aid accurate diagnosis.

After treatment for suspected anaphylaxis referral to a specialist allergy service is recommended with an adrenaline injector issued as an interim measure pending assessment by the specialist service.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of this guideline and implement any necessary changes to practice.
